Long Life Noodles
2022 Greetings, Friends of The Mala Market!
Chinese New Year is approaching—falling this year on Feb. 1—and one of the many auspicious foods you'll want to have on your table for the occasion is noodles.* Noodles represent longevity in Chinese culture, a wish that's forefront in everyone's mind this year.
So it's also an auspicious time to introduce The Mala Market's new line of regional Chinese noodles! You may remember that we sold a couple types of noodles in the past, sourced from other U.S. importers as a way to test your interest. We quickly found that you are indeed looking for just the right dried noodles for your favorite Sichuan dishes, so we set our sights on importing our own line of superior wheat, rice and sweet potato noodles from Sichuan and beyond.
We tasked our Chengdu team with finding the best of the best of each of our favorite styles, representing Sichuan, Chongqing, Yunnan and Guangdong. Suki and Charlotte made bowl after bowl and wok after wok of noodles, testing and tasting to find the four types that we are finally launching this month, direct from the regions that made them famous.
And if you need a reminder of just how many ways there are to prepare Chinese noodles, keep reading to find oodles of noodle recipes from both The Mala Market Blog and our expert affiliates.
Happy Year of the Tiger!
